The Transportation Accessibility Advisory Committee (TAAC) advises the Council on management policies for public transportation services in the region from the perspective of riders with disabilities.
Created by the Minnesota Legislature, the TAAC includes riders and advocates for older people and the disability community, as well as representatives of service providers and other appropriate agencies.

The TAAC consists of 16 members — a chair appointed by the Council, seven members chosen by disability and senior groups in the metro area, and eight others, also selected by the Council, who represent districts that are combinations of the Council's 16 districts. See the TAAC districts map (pdf).
At least half TAAC members must be certified as ADA paratransit eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act and be active users of public transportation in the metro area.
